Newcomers & International Students’ Committee

The International Students’ Committee is in charge of representing the needs, wishes and thoughts of full time, study permit holding, international students and of students who are newly landed immigrants in Canada. It is here to ensure that inter-cultural students have a voice in front of both the Graduate Students Association and the university’s administration.

The committee’s mandate spans all the various aspects of students’ life, ranging from academic matters to cultural events and leisure activities. The committee organizes events, workshops, information sessions, outdoor activities and consultations for international students, Canadian students, native and non-native English speakers, in partnership with various university services and out-of-campus organizations in town.
